The Magic of New Orleans: SPGAmex 35K Starpoint Challenge

 

NOLADo you want to travel more and get paid in points towards more trips?

You do not need magic to make this dream come true just sign up for the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express. Until March 30, 2016, SPG Amex is offering a sign-up bonus of 35,000 Starpoints after you use your new Card to make $3,000 in purchases within the first three months. I love my  card and all of the benefits available. 

LE MeridienCard Members are treated like royalty at Starwood Properties and I was challenged to use 35,000 Starpoints to book two nights at Le Meridien in New Orleans. My college roommate and I enjoyed incredible assistance from the entire concierge team who helped us select meals at Herbsaint, Luke and La Petite Grocery. Each restaurant was unique, fantastic and run by a James Beard Foundation winner or Top Chef! I also earned Starpoints towards my next adventure by paying with my SPG Amex card.

With SPG Amex, you can earn points  quickly and turn them into complimentary nights on your next vacation. You can use your Starpoints at over 1,100 Starwood properties and towards flights on 30 frequent flyer programs, all with no blackout dates.

SPGAmex Card ArtMy trip to New Orleans with Starpoints was incredible. It was easy to walk to see the floats at Mardi Gras World from my centrally located hotel. The St. Joseph’s Italian day parade was amazing to see and close to where we were staying. Literally around the corner from my hotel, a butterfly landed on my hand at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. I was able to check on times and locations easily with complimentary in-room premium Internet.

I am already selecting where I will use my Starpoints next! How would you use 35K Starpoints to plan a vacation?

Editor’s Note: While I received 35,000 Starpoints from American Express to talk about the incredible limited time offer for Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, all opinions expressed are my own.
